How i can read\export data within a C++ application to Excel files? I was found the xlslib project, but it only compiles with MingW on Windows. My target platform is windows (MVS2008)
If you’re stuck with unmanaged C++ and need to communicate directly with Excel you’ll need the COM automation interfaces. See the MSDN article link text
If you want the expressive power of the new managed interop, I think you may need to wrap your C++ code in an interop dll.
You can try this commercial library http://www.libxl.com, it works with Visual Studio 2008 and doesn’t require Microsoft Excel.
On windows, you can also give a try to ExcelFormat lib.
It doesn’t require Excel installed, and it’s very easy to use.
